Invest in YOU: Words of Wisdom from MMA Global APAC’s Women Leaders

MMA Global APAC Invest In You

Empowering women throughout the Asia Pacific region is the driving force behind MMA APAC’s new campaign, “Invest in YOU – Nurturing You, Transforming Tomorrow”. This initiative, aligned with the theme “Invest in Women: Accelerate Progress,” aims to inspire women through the transformative power of self-investment.

Seeking diverse perspectives, we asked prominent women leaders to offer a single piece of advice for women seeking to invest in themselves and create positive change. Their wisdom provides valuable insights:

From MMA Global APAC Board Member:

Richa Goswami, Group Chief Marketing Officer, Fidelity International: “Be Youself, Everybody is already taken”. Take the road less travelled as it will allow you to make the journey your own. As challenging as change will seem it’s the only constant. You need to stay curious and courageous and get comfortable with being uncomfortable because its when you step out of your comfort zone, magic happens.

Prerna Mehrotra, Chief Client Officer & CEO Media, dentsu Asia Pacific Pte Ltd: Be bold. Be brave. Don’t let any sentence start with ‘I wish I…’ or ‘If only I…’. If you never take that chance you will never know the possibilities. There are amazing opportunities for women today, and it’s for us to take them.

From MMA Global India Members from their recent unique panel curated by MMA Global India and Punctuate Productions:

Sunita Bangard (Group Head – Consumer Insights & Brand Development, Aditya Birla Group): “If you really want to change your life, you have to change your story.”

Inspired by the ethos of immense self-worth, Moneka Khurana, Country Head and Board Member, MMA Global India: “We as women do need to invest in ourselves before we expect the society, the community, the world at large to invest into us. So my humble request is if you’re a woman who is listening to this message, invest in yourself in as many ways as you can be it emotionally, physically, mentally, Spiritually, whatever ways it works, but invest in yourself. “

From MMA Global Vietnam Members:

Vy Pham, Country Head of Ads, Appier: “Let’s start our journey of self-investment! By dedicating ourselves to personal growth and well-being, I believe we can build the strength to make a real difference, not just for our lives, but also for those who are around us.”

 Venus Teoh Kim Wei, Deputy General Director – Marketing & Corporate Communication, SABECO Vietnam Co-chair of MMA Vietnam: “Women’s Day is a celebration of strength, determination, and resilience of women everywhere. There is no limit to what we as women can accomplish.

Embrace personal growth through empowerment and take time to invest in our development to boost our confidence and resilience, and strive to play our roles to create a positive impact on our lives and the world we live in.”

TraMy Nguyen, Deputy Managing Director cum CMO at Ogilvy Vietnam: “In Vietnam, we women often bear the weight of endless expected sacrifice for family, society, community, and country… but never for ourselves. As modern women aspiring to create positive change, let’s break free from outdated expectations of how women should always make the “noble sacrifice.”

Let us not forget that empowerment starts with self-prioritization.

Let us embrace the fact that nurturing our dreams isn’t selfish but essential.

Let us sow the seeds of transformation for generations to come.”

Thanh Bui, Managing Director, Havas Group Vietnam: “Commence our personal investment voyage! I am convinced that by committing to personal development and well-being, we can muster the fortitude necessary to effect substantial change, not only in our own lives but also in the lives of those around us.”

Phuong Doan, General Manager, Innity Vietnam: “It’s important to seek out inspirational moments of self-investment! Whether it’s pursuing our passions, learning new skills, or just simply taking care of our well-being, these moments not only empower us but also create a positive effect in our lives and others.”

Phan Dang Tra My, CEO – Admicro| Vice President – VCCorp: “Embrace personal growth for empowerment is something l highly encourage. Investing in our development will boost our confidence and resilience, enabling us to create a positive impact on our lives and the world.”

Naree Nguyen, Head of KA Partnerships, Tiktok Vietnam: “I strongly recommend embracing personal improvement for empowerment.” Investing in our personal growth will enhance our self-assurance and ability to adapt, empowering us to make a beneficial difference in our own lives and society.

Jessica Phan, Country Director of MMA Vietnam, Myanmar and Cambodia: “I always embrace a supportive platform between individuals. Creating spaces for collaboration and encouragement can enable growth and positive impacts within our communities.”

Corina Trang Luong, Sr. Sales Director, Double Verify Vietnam: “Remember, investing in yourself is not selfish – by dedicating ourselves to personal growth and well-being, following our passions, I believe we can build the strength to make a real difference, not just for our lives, but also for those who are around us.”
